The Graduate

Film

The Lincoln Theatre presents The Graduate 09/16/2017 at 7:30PM. "One word: plastics." Our Spectacular, Spectacular Film Series of Visually Stunning Films continues with The Graduate (1967), 50th Anniversary Restoration. Mentally adrift the summer after graduating from college, suburbanite Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman) would rather float in his parents' pool than follow adult advice about his future. But the exhortation of family friend Mr. Robinson (Murray Hamilton) to seize every possible opportunity inspires Ben to accept an offer of sex from icily feline Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft). The affair and the pool are all well and good until Ben is pushed to go out with the Robinsons' daughter Elaine (Katharine Ross) and he falls in love with her.

Pee Wee Ellis Funk Assembly

Jazz

The Lincoln Theatre presents Pee Wee Ellis Funk Assembly 09/18/2017 at 7:30PM. After some 55 eventful years as a musician, band leader, arranger and composer Pee Wee Ellis is still touring the world and working on new collaborations, despite his fast-approaching 75th birthday. His remarkable story spans six decades, starting in the 50s when he took himself and his sax off to New York city to find his heroes Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk and the great Sonny Rollins (who became his teacher and mentor.) A promising career leading jazz bands in Florida took an unexpected turn in the 1965 when he joined James Brown’s sensational Revue, playing alto. Within six months he was bandleader/musical director and was cowriting with James Brown. ‘Cold Sweat’, widely acknowledged as the first true funk record, and many of JB’s hits for the next four years were the fruit of this collaboration.

Most Likely To Succeed

Film

An inspiring look at what students and teachers are capable of — if we have the vision and courage to transform our schools. Directed by acclaimed documentarian Greg Whiteley, the film has been an official selection of two dozen of the world’s top film festivals. Once the envy of the world, the American educational system produced an unmatched workforce tailored for the 20th century. But as the global economy has shifted through the past 20 years, the United States has clung to an obsolete education model with an emphasis on teaching to the test, leaving our students woefully unprepared for 21st century employment and disillusioning teachers. This new feature-length documentary, which premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, examines the shortcomings of conventional education methods in today’s changing world and explores compelling new approaches that aim to transform learning as we know it.

NT Live: Yerma

Drama

The Lincoln Theatre presents NT Live: Yerma Sunday, Sep 24, at 2:00 pm. The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) returns in her award-winning role. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece. The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics call it ‘an extraordinary theatrical triumph’ (The Times) and ‘stunning, searing, unmissable’ (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piper’s lead performance is described as ‘spellbinding’ (The Evening Standard), ‘astonishing’ (iNews) and ‘devastatingly powerful’ (The Daily Telegraph). Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax.
